After the Prime Ministers announcement last night we have taken the difficult but sensible decision to close the yard for the next 3 weeks, with a review at the end of that period.
We have a duty of care for not only ourselves, our staff but to the rest of our clients. Therefore we have asked that all non essential personnel stay away from the yard. We will be exercising all of our own and liveries horses as normal.
Although a huge financial impact both Ben and myself have cancelled all of our teaching over this period as we both feel it is non essential and the responsible thing to do.
I would urge others including yard owners or horse owners to think if their horse is on livery do they really need to go and see them, or as a yard owner/manger, do you really need liveries there. We all have a responsibility right now.
A lovely write up in the Hedgerley Village magazine this month about all the goings on here at Rob Waine Dressage.
Back in October Ben Franklin Dressage and I were extremely honoured to be approached by Lendon Gray and Dressage4kids to give a clinic to the incredibly lucky kids that were on her 3 month program. Each year 14 kids apply from all of the USA to spend 3 months in Florida where they receive training each day, lectures and lots of competing! I want to apply!!!
What this lady has done for the youth in America, helping to bridge the gap in our sport and helping to break down the elitist mould, giving them the opportunity in the sport to receive top training, rides and education regardless of their bank account is just amazing and it’s funded by private donations!!
A huge thank you for Jan Lamontagne for having us stay in her beautiful home and showing us around, it really is horse paradise!
